Canadian Association of Law Libraries Project Profile - Editing the Canadian Law Library Review

The Canadian Association of Law Libraries (CALL) has been occasionally publishing "project profiles" on its website.

The profiles are intended to showcase interesting or innovative work conducted by CALL members.

This most recent profile is about Editing the Canadian Law Library Review (CLLR). It features the CLLR editor Nikki Tanner discussing her work:
"Do you have tips for library professionals considering getting involved in editorial work? Why might someone want to be involved?
I suggest learning more about writing, grammar, and punctuation. You’ll learn by doing, but it helps to know these things beforehand. Also, read articles, essays, professional blog posts, etc., to get a feel for how to organize content and strengthen arguments. And please, memorize your McGill Guide!"

"Being involved with CLLR keeps you on the cutting edge of what’s happening in the law library world in Canada and beyond. I know that I’ve personally learned a lot over the years from the great content provided by our amazing editorial team, without whom I’d be lost. Depending on what you’re in charge of, you’ll learn about new research (features editor), new books (book review editors), what colleagues are doing in different parts of the country (local and regional updates editor), the latest research being published elsewhere (bibliographic notes editor), and new research products and tools (advertising manager). You’ll also form relationships with legal information specialists and librarians from all over the country. And it looks great on your CV!"
